Place & Date of Origin: —

A photographer’s note (an image towards the beginning of the film) reads, “This volume has a very tight binding and[,] while every effort has been made to reproduce the centres, force would result in damage.” For the most part the gutters come through in full, with a few exceptions (ex. gr. the tiny marginal notes on 111r-113r).

Sometimes slightly faded (ex. gr. 21r, 33r) but legible.
